I am very relieved that the deputies are going to be charged with animal cruelty. It seems that many in law enforcement use their tazers like little boys with cap guns. After all of the cruelty that transpired recently at the hands of local law enforcement, I would be very hesitant to ever call for their assistance.(Probably woudn't matter as the one time I did call in the early morning hours seeking help as someone was trying to break down my door, I was informed that they were too busy)

Yeah! Too busy having coffee or shooting the BS with their co-workers. Chief Kirkpatrick has her hands full with this group of officers. The good old boys system is alive and well in Spokane. The problem is with the city attorney and assistant attorney. Get rid of those two and it's a good start in the right direction. The chief is not going to be able to do it all on her own. it's way bigger than you can imagine in this city which has run this way for at least 50 years. That's why the west side of the state
doesn't have anything to do with us! This area is like the wide open range of the cattle ranchers back in the 1800's. The law only matters when you have someone from the outside enforcing it! Good Luck, changing Spokanes WAY.

I would have shot the baby calf traffic hazard. Can you imagine if that calf walked into oncoming traffic and you collided with that calf and it went through the windshield killing or crippling you or your loved one.

Tasers are little toys? Those little toys safe your purp friends lives. Your lucky we have them.

Someone breaking down your door and the police were to busy huh? Yeah right, thats a serious priority call! Are you slinging meth? Either buy a gun or let your drunk domestic partner inside.

Go back to Seattle you liberal and stop bashing Spokane.

I cried when I read about the baby calf dying because of 2 thugs who probably thought it was funny. How can people be so cruel to animals, much less a calf? Why on earth was the poor calf tasered???

I am sickened by how long these 2 sub-humans tasered the calf. I hope they pay dearly (jail time)for what they've done. And they have to stand before God one day and explain why they killed one of His creatures in such an inhumane way.

well, I cannot say I condone the actions of the officers. Obviously, the calf was not a life threatening situation. What would be a just punishment is what a cicilian would receive for such an act. We look up to police officers and expect more from them. Those that enforce the law should obey the law. I rest my case.

I'm really upset with the mistreatment of this poor poor lil cow. What if the cow was a young minority child. Things have gotten way too out of hand these days and it's why the world is ending in 2012! D:

Why do police carry the tasers anyways? What happened to just batons back in the old days. And riot shields (cause really, no cow is getting past that!) Those days were much less dangerous and less deaths occurred. Can someone make this topic a bit clearer to me, because i'm not exactly sure why a human being with thought process and all, would taze a poor innocent animal. ITS JUST WRONG :'(

We need to make a petition against things such as this. Please help me stop the animal abuse, it makes me really sad sad panda.

Thanks guys in advance, you're understanding makes me feel better and believe that maybe one day there can be complete peace and zero violence. I can't wait. We must fight against 2012.

This is a POSTER CHILD for animal cruelty perpetrated by those with legal right to extract force. I expect punishment here. At a minimum, they should lose their jobs and hopefully something more than that.

Police is always under pressure to do the right things, and do so most of the time, IMHO, but this will need to be dealt with appropriately, because things like this ferment resentment against those who risk their lives to keep us others safe at all times.
